Use your advanced research skills to contribute to new developments in radiotherapy, diagnostic medical procedures and health physics.
This program is assessed by both a research project and the completion of five courses.
The research project is in medical or health physics, and is examined by thesis.
The coursework is vocationally relevant to radiotherapy, diagnostic imaging, radiation protection and health physics, and is available in online mode.
You will complete Research Methods for Sciences in your first semester. Four other courses will be undertaken in subsequent semesters.
The program is accredited by the Australasian College of Physical Scientists and Engineers in Medicine (ACPSEM) as an approved postgraduate qualification forming a compulsory component of the requirements to become a certified medical physicist.
Research activities are conducted within related research institutes and groups including the Applied Electromagnetics and Radiation Physics Research Group.
You will use state-of-the-art equipment and facilities including:
You will also have access to partner organisation facilities including Medical Linear Accelerators, CT & MR Imaging and the Australian Synchrotron.
The minimum requirements for admission to a master by research program are:
At RMIT a grade of credit represents academic achievement of 60% or higher.
A masters degree will provide you with a foundation for further studies into a PhD and employment in senior leadership and management research-based positions in a variety of government, non-government and corporate organisations.
Graduates of this program are now employed by organisations including:
and many other hospitals and agencies in Australia and around the world.
